Schizo-somatic sessions are part of a research-creation project with and through the Senselab that brings together somatic practices with the concept of the schiz, cut or interval, following philosophers Deleuze and Guattari in their book Anti-Oedipus. At the core of this practice are the speculative-pragmatic questions: how can we think of the body as a complex ecology full of points of redirection; as an expression of the world living through it? What are the stakes of the making of new bodies for new practices(lives)? How can we collectively invent these new ways by experimenting with techniques and conditions for a world-to-come?

Inspired by the ways of moving-with the fascial planes (connective tissue) of the body, we invite participants to explore this deeply relational layer together. How can it lead to a rethinking where a body begins and ends, an attunement to a field beyond our perceived limits? In what ways can we agitate the paths that often lead to exhaustion; not only of humans, but of the world?

Csenge Kolozsvari is an interdisciplinary artist exploring the embodied relationship between thought, movement and sound through the process of change – a transformation by repetition. Through the materiality of sound and movement and the performativity of mundane aesthetic choices (plastic sheets, toys, human bodies, ropes, elevators, aquarium, etc.) she creates multisensory pieces that propose ‘durational escape routes’ for thinking and acting differently. She is also part of the Senselab, a laboratory for thought in motion. Here, she is participating in the process-based research-creation at the crossroads of philosophy, art, and activism, focusing on embodied relational movement and emergent collectivities.

SenseLab is a space for creative research and play that explores alternative forms of collective learning and collaboration. The lab aims to create spaces that welcome and attune to the experiences of neurodiversity, with recent programming including the Minor Movements series held in Europe in 2019. Described by founder Erin Manning as exploring “art at the edges of practice” Senselab is a space to inspire experiment and collaboration. Taking cues from the creative methods of early childhood education, Senselab aims to deconstruct hierarchy and social formulae to create an alternative, living space of encounter.

ELAN is an official minority language organization within a country that only recognizes two languages as official. ELAN is located in Tiohtiak:ke, which is the original name for Montreal in Kanien’keha:ka, the language of the Mohawk—also known as Mooniyang, which is the Anishinaabeg name given to the city by the Algonquin. While we are based in this city, our projects have also taken place in many regions across Quebec.
We would also like to acknowledge the important work being done by First Nations to revive the traditional languages of these territories, and their advocacy for the official status of Indigenous languages. Kanien’keha:ka and Anishinaabeg are but two of the original languages of this province, in which English and French are colonial languages. The province that we know as Quebec is an amalgamation of the traditional territories of the Innu and Inuit nations, Algonquian nations, as well as the Mohawk nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Atikamekw, Cree, Inuktitut, and Innu-aimun are also among the many Indigenous languages spoken across Quebec as majority languages, and well before French and English.
